's something that because so much is at stake, lives of american citizens are at stake and all should be put in the hands and are being put in it hands of one person and even if you trust president obama with this power, they're setting it up for the future so that every president in the future will have this power to decide whether american citizen lives or dies. >> how much of a concern to you and my colleague andrea mitchell pointed this out that it's not that the white house is not taking this seriously but looking at the public sentiment and the lack of if you will outrage of the public, for example, that we're not seeing does that at all give you pause or is it in your view that people don't quite understand that this is not about this administration, this is about other administrations and looking down the line here? >> oh, i think if you were to poll today and by next week, i think things are very different. i think things are really changing this week and in large part due to michael isikoff getting the memo and releasing it. this is a huge issue. the white house is very worried abo
never be anyone in a position to have unlateral decision making on killing americans. guys like me and the men and women of the military and the intelligence agencies over the last 250 years did not do what they did to allow a king, any king in this case obama and his guys to arbitrarily decide who goes on a kill list. we need due process. end of story. if you want to kill terrorist around the world. you have my blessing and i would stay most people who know me over the last 11 years on fox, know i am to haveto the right of the astilla the nun in protect being americans. but when it inform'res americans we need a different set of standarpeds. >> who will incorporate those standards? >> the constitution testimonies us how we are supposed to. and you and i discussed . there are judges like judge napolitano . who is involved in the process and whether to put them on the serious list. you don't want to be on the list that authorizes them to kill you obviously. and then, when we get back to the interrogation side. i am all for water boarding is it water boarding that many of the critici

an analysis of why president obama does not need support traditional americans any longer i told that you on election night. as you may know the president won the popular vote by about 5 million and electoral vote by 126. but the race was close up until the very last weekend when governor romney inexplicably disappeared. the truth is romney could have defeated president obama but he needed to wage aggressive campaign but he didn't. the national journal has concluded that president obama has given up, given up trying to persuade culturally conservative white americans to his cause. the journal is saying the president believes a coalition he he has assembled. minorities, women, young voters and hard core liberals is, quote and will allow democrats to dominate the next generation of elections. joining us from boca row tan florida, brit hume. journal have it right? >> in part, yeah. if you draw a straight line a projection forward from the 2012 election day, into the future, you get the result that the analysis in the national journal is talking about. politics rarely moves in a straight line
